Wines on the rocks…

It is said that it was the court of Philip II (late 16th century) to disclose and institute the habit of tasting ice cream, or cold drinks during the summer months in Portugal. Considering that modern refrigeration technologies did not exist at the time, the use of snow and ice was the only option available. Come and see the unique and innovative Ice Factory, and taste the elegant and fresh wines of the Atlantic Coast.

You will get to see and feel:

On this adventurous day, you will visit 2 wineries in the Lisbon wine region. You will get to know and experience the famous historical wines from Colares, or the white wines that were widely popular during the Elizabeth era in England and again during the Victorian age thanks to the presence of the British army on our territory against the Napoleon troops.

Come and taste almost extinct and unique in the world grape varieties, that have met a new future with the new generation of oenologists.

Lunch in a typical restaurant and taste the delicious local regional cuisine. The most distinctive feature of Portuguese cuisine comes from the sea. As you enjoy a simple grilled fish, always fresh like the seafood that abounds from end to end along the coast, you can be sure that you are in Portugal.

The habit of tasting ice cream and quench your thirst with cool drinks in the hot summer months have been introduced in Portugal in the late sixteenth century, the time of the Philippine Dynasty. The growing consumption of ice in the eighteenth century, not only at court and among the nobility but also on the bourgeois and popular layers, have motivated the construction of the Royal Ice Factory in Montejunto.
Appreciate how the facility was constructed and how locals transported this delicatessen to Lisbon and know how the modern habits of drinking cool drinks and enjoying ice cream were definitely installed in urban areas only at the end of the XIX century.
